NASA may have collected evidence of organic Martian matter 40 years ago — then burned it away accidentally in the Viking landers. A new study tackles the decades-old mystery.
Life on Mars? Maybe. NASA's Curiosity rover just found ancient building blocks of life on Mars, paving the way for the search for life in Earth's closest neighbor.
NASA got back on drill duty as the Curiosity drill resumes operations on Mars. Scientists used a new percussive technique that allowed the team to collect its first drill sample since 2016.
NASA is slated to launch the latest Mars lander InSight on Saturday, May 4. The lander is designed to study marsquakes and help scientists learn more about the origins of rocky planets such as Earth and Mars.
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured the Mars rover in lower Mount Sharp of the surface of Mars. The rover appears as a bright blue dot on the ground.
NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover managed to capture dark sand dunes and even collected samples at lower Mount Sharp. The dunes are part of the two-phase campaign to compare sand dunes on Mars.
Scientists say that the Martian atmosphere was lost into space over the years. Researchers used data from NASA's MAVEN and Curiosity rover to come up with the findings.
Two visible breaks were discovered in one of Mars Curiosity Rover's wheels. The wheels are already showing signs of wear and tear from traversing the unforgiving Martian terrain.
NASA is studying whirlwinds on Mars that were captured by Curiosity rover. These winds are capable of transporting dust thus affecting the planet's landscape.
The Opportunity rover already spent 13 years on the red planet. And just like teenagers, it has matured in many ways.
NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover captured an image of purple rocks on the surface of the red planet. Could it mean there was once microbial life on the red planet?
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover discovered organic matter such as "boron" on the red planet. This increases the chance of finding a suitable condition for microbes to thrive on Mars.
Since landing on Mars in 2012, NASA’s Curiosity Rover is slowly making its way along the Martian landscape, all while collecting rock samples. However, while on its way up Mount Sharp, the rover reportedly started to act weird. NASA engineers state that the rover is facing technical difficulties, particularly with its extendable arm that drills holes into Martian rock.
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover is on a hiatus due to the technical glitch experienced by its drilling mechanism. But despite that, other instruments aboard the rover is still functioning well including its cameras and spectrometers.
